Dear Trevor,



At Newcastle University we currently run a large amount of summative assessments through Blackboard. Last year we ran 100 exams with over 13,000 student sittings. 



The students access the exam through a locked down browser that shows only the Blackboard test area. I believe this is done using Firefox and some Greasemonkey scripts.  We also pull the settings of each exam through onto a .php checking page that shows all the relevant settings.



The tests are created either through Blackboard or using a Word document in Respondus format. The navigation around the test functions in Blackboard is not always intuituve and some functionality doesn’t work as you would expect. I'm sure you are familiar with this! We don’t use the Survey functionality and use the Pools rarely.



I think the item analysis feature is very good and helps academic staff to improve the quality of their questions each year. 



Dave Sharples has added a link through to our blog. I'm happy to discuss any features offline with you as well.



Best wishes,



Graeme
